I don't have any machine (as yet anyway) to use dies, but I looked on the Sizzix web site for this product to see if there was any info that might help you. Their info shows that it works with a number of machines, including the Big Shot, and they have a video showing how to use it. They actually use a Big Shot for the demo. They used the magnetic platform and set the regular platform aside as it was not used. Then the demonstrator placed a cutting pad on top of the magnetic platform, followed by card stock and a Framelit die. It is meant for use with their own thin dies plus other "chemically-etched wafer-thin dies." If Nestabilities fit that description, it would be reasonable to think that they would work. There was nothing said about embossing folders. Hope this info is of some help to you.
